Dress them in plenty of layers

Layers are important for helping to keep your child warm and can be taken off easily when they get too hot after running around or walking to school. If it’s particularly cold out, you might want to consider putting them in a thermal vest – especially if they’re going to be outside a lot. Check out this fantastic guide to layering for children which has ideas for use all year round, ideal for helping you plan your child’s wardrobe.

Always add a hat

Beanie hats are perfect for winter. They’re cute and functional and come in so many great styles. Let your child choose their own beanie, something that they’ll want to wear throughout the winter. There are some great styles for kids featuring animal ears, pom poms and others that are right on-trend right now, so hopefully, they’ll be more willing to wear theirs when they leave the house.

Don’t forget gloves

It makes sense to invest in a few pairs of gloves to get through the winter season. Children are notorious for losing small items, and gloves are up there at the top of the list. Keep gloves in their coat pockets, in your handbag, their school bag, and the car – you never know when you might need them. There are some amazing mitten/finger glove combos available as well that offer double protection for those really cold days.

Invest in good outerwear

Kids grow, that’s something that won’t change – so it’s important that you kit them out in the right outerwear each year, which is going to require a shopping trip. You’ll want to invest in some good outerwear that not only offers warmth but could guard against harsh winter rain too. Take a look at the selection at Nickis – they have some practical but stylish pieces that will be sure to keep kids warm. Investing in better-quality pieces means that they’ll last longer, and could be passed down from older to children to younger ones.

 

Dressing your child for winter is simple when you’ve got all the right items at home. When you know you’ve dressed them for the elements, you’ll feel much happier when they go to school or head out to play. Want more practical winter parenting tips?
